Fast and easy setup
AWS Elemental Link devices are shipped fully configured for your AWS Account. Simply connect the device to power, an IP network, and a 3G-SDI or HDMI video source. Once connected, your Link device starts sending thumbnail images and is available as a source for MediaLive in the AWS Management Console, ready for live streaming.
Manage and monitor devices remotely
With AWS Elemental Link, you control the entire live event workflow using the AWS Management Console. Because you can manage and monitor multiple devices anywhere in the world from a central point of control, you don’t need to send technical operators to event sites in order to set up and configure your live streams.
At a price of $995 USD per device (excluding customs clearance, duty, tax, and shipping), Link provides a broadcast-grade way to connect your on-premises live video source to MediaLive at a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches. With easy set-up and remote management, Link is efficient to own and operate.
Small and portable
Link devices are small and portable, with minimal power and cooling requirements. Silent, fanless operation and nominal heat generation make the devices practical to use in low-noise environments like studios or conference rooms. Link travels wherever you need to connect live video to the cloud.
High video quality

How do I set up AWS Elemental Link on-premises?
Link devices takes a single video input as a source and send a single video output to AWS Elemental MediaLive. Set up requires three connections to begin streaming video to MediaLive: a power source, an IP network, and an SDI or HDMI video source. Link also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) so you can use as few as two cables. On most networks (ones that use DHCP), no further configuration is needed. Link devices come preconfigured for your AWS Account; once connected, the device begins transferring video thumbnails, can be stopped and started, and is available to use in a MediaLive. Link can go from out-of-the-box to live streaming in less than one minute.

Can I install Link in a rack-mount configuration?
Link fits into facilities of practically any size and can be installed in any standard equipment rack. The device fits three across on a standard 19 in. rack shelf. Link devices are easy to transport and takes up just a fraction of the space and power of a standard 1U server, making then ideal for flypacks and other types of remote production installations.
AWS Elemental Link costs $995 USD per device (excluding customs clearance, duty, tax, and shipping). In addition, MediaLive input pricing applies to your live video.
